Saint Ignatius is officially a cool school!
This morning, March 5, 2015, Fox 8 News featured a news segment (shot at Ignatius this past Wednesday) detailing why Ignatius lives up to the honorous name of “Cool School of the Week.”
Teachers Ryan Masterson S.J. and Mr. Jerry DeCarlo and students James Norris ‘16 and Kellen Dugan ‘15 were selected to speak on behalf of the school in a two minute video segment.
“In high school you kind of think there would be certain cliques, but really the important thing I took from here is the fact that everyone is your friend. Everyone is here together,” Norris explained, regarding what he loves about Saint Ignatius. Masterson then went on to speak about the abundance of service opportunities featured at Ignatius.
Following the video, Senior Class President Brian Koehler and Mitch Pallaki ‘16 were featured on the live morning show to play a “Coffee Trivia Quiz.” On representing the school live, Koehler said, “It was a really cool experience and I’m glad I was able to represent the school.”
Perhaps the most memorable moment of the segment, and the best way to describe the honor, is Masterson singing: “Welcome to the place where wildcats rule, Saint Ignatius is a cool school!”
